Corporate Social Responsibility:
Safeguarding our Future
Integral to our services and policies is our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility. Sustainability is fundamental to our core values and operations of the business. We recognise that we can drive positive change for employees, customers, communities and the environment through our philanthropic activities.
We have developed a number of policies to assist us in achieving our objectives and have achieved ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 27001 certification.
In pursuit of our CSR objectives, we encourage our team to make a positive impact on the environment and our stakeholders including clients, employees and the local community. It is evident in our own policies how we approach CSR as a 21st century organisation.
We recognise that what we do today affects the environment of both current and future generations and we are therefore committed to continuous environmental improvement. Our aim is to ensure that our work is undertaken in such a manner as to have minimum impact on the environment in which we operate and, where possible, enhance the environment in which we work and operate.
In pursuit of our environmental objectives, we shall:
- Identify the aspects of our business that will have an impact on the environment
- Set appropriate targets to reduce our environmental impacts and enhance the environment we operate in
- Engage with our employees to comply with environmental legislation, regulations, client requirements and best practice
- Prevent pollution and contamination
- Measure and manage energy consumption
- Minimise the use of resources (materials, fuel and energy) thereby reducing waste
- Re-use and re-cycle waste materials where possible
- Give our clients clear advice about the environmental aspects of their portfolios
- Encourage and influence our clients, contractors and suppliers to work with us in securing beneficial change in our shared environmental impacts
Our quality objectives are:
- To exceed the expectations of our clients
- To achieve and improve various Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) to ensure that our clients have timely and accurate information
- Sell and support internet software which is available and fit for purpose
- To continuously improve the quality of services that we provide to our clients and, as such, this quality management system
- Identify the aspects of our business that have an impact on the quality of our service
- Work to a business process model and identify clear procedures
- Be proactive in identifying any deficiencies affecting the quality of our service and take appropriate action
- Meet and where possible exceed internal key performance indicators
- Report to clients on our performance at agreed intervals
- Communicate our policy and procedures with our employees and associates
- Carry out internal audits of our quality management system on a regular basis
Our approach is no different in our own camp. We have achieved OHSAS 18001 certification, the internationally recognised assessment specification for our occupational health & safety management system.
We strive to secure and protect the health, safety and welfare of our employees, subcontractors, visitors and all others affected by our work activities. We provide and maintain safe and healthy working conditions, and encourage employees and others under our control to be actively involved in maintaining the safest possible operating conditions and practices.
We are committed to continuously improving our health and safety performance through the setting and achieving of health and safety objectives, and carry out a regular review of our policy to ensure that we maintain high standards of health and safety.
Our employees are very valuable to us and we believe in training and investing in our people to excel within their roles and deliver excellent products, services, solutions and experiences to our clients.
Key to our operations is our commitment to honest and proper business operations, independence and impartiality of advice and acting ethically, fairly and with complete integrity at all times.
